General Information

Up to 6 Small Group Meetings and 2 Medium Size Meetings per year - organised by members of the EASP - are sponsored by the EASP.

Criteria

The Executive Committee uses certain criteria to decide whether or not to support small group and medium size meetings. These criteria are the following:

The meeting should be attractive to members of the Association (such that Association funds are being used for the benefit of its members). This is why at least 50 % of those persons attending small group or medium size meetings sponsored by the Association should be members of the Association.

There should be sufficient time before the meetings for their existence to be advertised to the membership through the pages of the Bulletin (thereby allowing members to submit abstracts, apply for travel money, etc.). This is why there are strict deadlines for applying for financial support for small group and medium size meetings (see below).

The meetings should not, in principle, be part of a continuing series, each of which requires support from the Association (to avoid the annual budget for supporting meetings being committed in advance, and thereby leaving no scope for supporting new activities). The Executive Committee recognises that this criterion could undermine attempts to establish networks of researchers drawn from different European countries, and will therefore try to exercise discretion in applying this criterion. However, applicants who are planning a small group or medium size meeting that is part of an ongoing series should not assume that because one of the previous meetings in that series received financial support, any future meeting in the same series will also be supported.

  • At least 50 % of the participants at the meeting are members of the Association.

  • There will normally be two such meetings per year supported financially by the Association.
  • Substantial participation of postgraduate students is strongly encouraged. Additional support for this purpose can be expected.

Applying

General requirements
Each application should specify:

(a) the topic of the proposed meeting, together with a brief account of why this forms a suitable topic for such a meeting;
(b) the precise dates and location of the proposed meeting;
(c) a list of potential participants;
(d) an outline budget, including how much participants would have to pay for registration, accommodation, and food, and some indication of sources of funding apart from the Association;
(e) a draft announcement of the meeting, ready for publication in the Bulletin.

Application forms can be:

(a) ordered from the Executive Officer
(b) downloaded (Icon Word Word 25KB)

Deadlines

  • For Small group meetings
    In order to facilitate the Association's financial planning and to give adequate time in which to publicise meetings, the Executive Committee considers applications relating to meetings to be held in the first half of a calendar year at its Spring (normally April) meeting in the preceding year; applications relating to meetings to be held in the second half of a calendar year will be considered at its Fall (normally October) meeting in the preceding year. Members are asked to submit applications by March 15 for the Spring Meeting and by September 15 for the Fall meeting.
  • For Medium-size meetings
    Applications for support for these meetings should reach the Executive Committee in time for either its Spring or Fall meeting (depending on whether the Medium Size Meeting is planned for the first or the second half of the calendar year) in the preceding year. The deadlines for applications for support for medium sized meetings are the same as those described above for small group meetings.

Upon being successful in applying
Successful applicants will be asked to provide a formal announcement for publication in the EASP Bulletin. Organisers will receive 50% of the support in advance. Within one month after the meeting, organisers are required to provide a brief scientific report, the abstracts of the meeting, an overview of the participants (indicating their EASP member status, when applicable), and a financial statement accounting for expenditure. The remaining 50% of the support will be paid to the organisers if the reports prove that the organisers have in fact met all the conditions for support as laid down in the EASP rules.
